Strawberries. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

stawberries

Life is in a state of constant motion in Ho Chi Minh City. It was here that we learned how to walk across a road teeming with traffic that doesn’t even slow down, let alone stop, for pedestrians. The trick is to just walk slowly and they’ll all drive around. It’s exactly as terrifying as it looks.

If you’d like to see a video we made of that experience, click here to check out a very very old site of ours, and a post that was, coincidentally, published exactly six years ago today. Time flies.

So Ho Chi Minh City is full of people moving and our room was perfectly situated over a small, but busy street. The perfect spot to change up our perspective, and capture the street scene from a different angle.

Some of the my favourite photos are the result of taking a very simple idea, and applying it to a fascinating subject. Normally we shoot street photography on the street. Shooting it from above changes everything.

  1. I love the perspective of this photo because it gives that lovely view of the strawberries which you just wouldn’t realise are there from street level. They add a lovely bit of extra colour too :)

  2. Im Vietnamese and living in HCMC.Are you guys still in Vietnam?
    I really like to read your blog everyday.

      Hey Nino! That’s so cool that you’re in HCMC! Unfortunately no, we aren’t there! We visited in 2008, but would love to return some day, we didn’t see nearly as much as we would have liked! Thanks for saying hi!
